The Weight Of Kindness

Weight of Kindness“Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.”
-Mother Teresa

Kindness weighs more than anything else in the world; a weight which everyone would be happy enough to carry. But its weight is decreasing day by day. In this fast-paced world, people are using other people for their own advantage. People these days, are more concerned about their well-being even if the other person is left to suffer, they think only about themselves even if anyone else’s life suffers turmoil because of them.

In short people have forgotten the word – “kindness” ever existed. This world now only contains a small percent of people who really care about others and want them to be happy just as much as they; themselves are. Humanity has lost its direction, and we are now walking on a path which says ‘kill or be killed’.

Plato once said
“Be kind to everyone you meet, for everyone you meet; is fighting an even harder battle”.

But what people really care about these days is their own battle, and they only consider their own chance of winning.
Humans are now like Honey bees, sucking the nectar out of beautiful flowers. No religion on Earth promotes un-kindness in anyway. So this to all those who are to self-centered to care about others:

“There’s a world outside your inner circle;
Only if you would take a look and see;
They need us just as much as we
Need them to be.”
-Aleena Haq

  1. A very fine sentiment. Kindness might generate kindness in return, but unkindness will surely generate unkindness in return, so the kind approach seems by far the better. In the US we say “you get more bees with honey than with vinegar.” 🙂

  2. It is a good reading and clearly illuminates the importance of much needed kindness in these hard times. Particularly in Pakistan this lost tradition is badly needed, as terrorism and other social evils have seriously disturbed the live of a common man.

  3. I agree with the author. Not only kindness but we have forgotten the word “tolerance” also. We fight with each other over petty issues. Disputes are being resolved through bullets rather than dialogues. It’s a sad reality. We need to wake up from this nightmare.
